The South Sydney Rabbitohs have announced their team for this Saturday’s SG Ball (under 18s) Qualifying Final clash against the Newcastle Knights.
The Matt King-coached Souths side finished the competition proper in fourth spot and will now take on the Minor Premiership winning Knights in their opening Finals Series clash.
“It’s a whole new ball-game now,” said King of the upcoming clash.
“That competition’s now over and there’s a new challenge in front of us that starts this week against the best side in the comp (the Knights).
“I think we’ve laid a positive platform during the regular season that we’ll now build on. The boys have shown great character and dedication to our processes. We just need to put that into practice this weekend the way we know we can.”
Souths’ only loss of the season came in Round five against the Knights at Cessnock.
Make sure you head out to St Marys Stadium this Saturday to throw your support behind the next generation of Rabbitohs as they look to advance to the next stage of the SG Ball Finals Series.
